Hungry Hearts ( Tomes of the Dead )

In a world torn apart by hunger, the only thing colder than death is love…

Rick Nutman is a rookie policeman. When the city of Leeds erupts into blood-spattered chaos he must fight through hungry hordes of the living dead to return home and protect Sally, his new wife, the only woman he has ever loved.

Daryl lives with his dying mother, and views the apocalypse as the perfect opportunity to put his long-held plans into action. Daryl has always wanted to be a serial killer. Tonight he will achieve that dream, and Sally will become his first victim.

As the world runs down and the streets burn with the rage of the undead, Rick flees with his reanimated wife across a ravaged landscape, and Daryl chases them with his own agenda – to be the only serial killer in history to kill the same victim twice.

Murder, obsession and desire collide in this dark tale of love and death… and the things that lie beyond.
